WARNING!  Mystery Shopper Scam

A fraudulent Canadian company is using the CLARK name to mail counterfeit checks for thousands of dollars, instructing you to deposit the check and then wire part of the money back to them.  The company falsely claims the money that you wire will go towards your training to become a mystery shopper.  This is a criminal and illegal scam.  Do not attempt to cash or deposit the check.  Do not wire any money to anyone.

If you have received a letter or email with similar information to the one described above, it is recommended that you do the following:

• DO NOT attempt to cash or deposit the check (if the check has already been deposited, you should alert your bank immediately).
• DO NOT send any money to Western Union or Money Gram
• Contact your local post office, your state consumer protection agency (Visit 
www.naag.org for a list of state Attorneys General), and your local Western Union or Money Gram office.
• Consider filing a complaint to the FTC via its website.
